Ashford CC Sunday 25th May

We are delighted to be hosting Ashford CC this year

This is a fixture that has occurred annually since the 1970’s….

Below is a snippet from our Centenary book

“Our then Chairman Eric Howarth was travelling along the A6 from Bakewell to Tideswell in Derbyshire when he came across a Cricket match in the village of Ashford. Eric wasted no time in seeking out their secretary and arranging a fixture for the following season.

 

Our first matches against Ashford were played early September, but of late we have played the game on the Spring Bank weekend in May. Over the years there have been some large totals scored at Ashford, whether this is because of skill or the amount of beer consumed in the pub before hand is a matter of opinion. We have made man friends because of this fixture between our two clubs and we hope this will continue for many years to come.”
